Black Heroes Statue Garden

Join us in creating a lasting legacy in North America that will make history and last for a thousand years. Your participation will help us make Toronto home to Black Heroes Statue Gardens commemorating Black people's contributions towards making North America a better place for us all to live, work and play. Designed with artists from West Africa, the new garden will be situated in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA). The statue garden provides a much-needed platform for the Black community to make visible the abundance of stories of service and sacrifice for the advancement of humanity that we've overlooked.

The Black Heroes Statue Gardens, made of bronze to last a millennium, will address and remedy the absence of permanent statues of Black leaders in the GTHA. It will be an unparalleled tourist attraction for Toronto, unlike anything else across Canada. These art pieces will help dispel the negative stereotypes about the Black community that may lead to discriminatory behaviours, and serve as transformative resources for fostering interracial harmony and inclusion.

Want to join our league of supporters in making a difference? We're raising money for the Black Heroes Statue Garden with the help of the Associates of the University of Toronto Inc, and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this worthy cause.
